If there’s one thing that’s guaranteed on Game of Thrones, it’s that a character is going to die. We’re now at the Season 7 premiere, and we’ll likely be facing some new deaths. Everyone assumes that somebody’s going to die, which is why there are now “death pools” for Game of Thrones characters. OddsShark posted a prediction for Season 7 and put Jamie in the lead. But others are placing their bets on Cersei or some lesser-important characters. Of course, we all know that Game of Thrones is anything but predictable, so sometimes the characters deemed least likely to die are the ones who actually do.
Here are some of the biggest predictions about who will die next, possibly even in the Season 7 premiere.
OddsShark’s last death prediction since the Season 6 finale gave Jamie the best odds of dying next, with +409. He had just returned to King’s Landing and walked in on Cersei’s coronation. He’ll soon find out about Tommen. I guess the assumption is that Jamie will be killed by Cersei, but it seems unlikely. It seems more likely that he might one day be killed by Brienne, in a really heart-wrenching scene.
As hard as it is to believe, Cersei Lannister was OddsShark’s next choice for most likeliest to die next, at +411. Vox kind of backed up this theory by ranking Cersei as the least likely to survive the series. Maybe Jamie will do away with her when he finds out about Tommen. He walked in on her coronation, so he knows something is wrong if Tommen isn’t king anymore.
Following Cersei, OddsShark picked Jorah Mormant, Euron Greyjoy, Melisandre, and any White Walker. (Well, that last one seems like a safe bet!)
Meahwhile, A.V. Club cast their top vote in the Sand Snake category. Maybe that was more hoping, since a lot of people were annoyed by their storyline in Season 6.
Nymeria, the Direwolf
A.V. Club next picked Nymeria, which is kind of sad. Nymeria hasn’t been seen since Season 1 and is one of the few direwolve left alive. How many are still around? See Heavy’s story here to find out.
